Well, I have a cirrus logic (Cl-5430)with 1MB Vram. The univbe detects
my card correctly and the linear frame buffer is at 2048(or 2046, I
cant really remember)MB. My card supports up to 24bit color(640x480)
and 1280x1024 resolution (16 colors only). 

But I test the the fps of vesa 2.0 using the demo.exe that comes with
allegro at the resolution 640 x 480, 256 colors, double buffer. Did I
answer all of your question ??
